Hi. I installed win 8 a couple of weeks ago and everything was working fine when all of a sudden while browsing the internet I see how the Q key is being pressed continuously. For example when I'm looking at a site all of a sudden the browser will start acting as if I was hitting the Q key repeatedly. Same with the media player (AIMP). When I'm listening to music I would get the song that I'm listening to go to the queue like 10 times as if I'm pressing the Q key to add it to the queue. I scanned the computer with AVG (not the free version) and the Spybot S&D and it didn't find anything. Do you know how I can see what's causing this mysterious action? The key is not stuck. I checked that. I tried removing some of the last programs that I've installed (the last 3) and still didn't help. I tried reinstalling the Java and Flash. Still didn't work. And the thing is that when I'm using the computer this doesn't happen but when I leave it idle for a couple of minutes I get - qqqqqqqqqqqqqq qqqqqqqqqqqqqq.... I do not know what to do.
